I actually do use the gacutil as I looked into other CLI packages, but
I'm under the impression that I should do some more.

It's not that hackish indeed, I just made a script wrapping around
libtool that can produce binaries within the working directory instead
of the libdir. It's definitely necessary since some of the libsbml's
language bindings relies on the language-specific build systems (e.g.
perl and python).
